The Winter Meetings started today in Orlando, and, sure enough, things were a bit slower than usual thanks to all the craziness of last week. I’m talking about all baseball, not just the Yankees. Most of the top free agents are off the board already and the starting pitching market seems to be in a holding pattern until the Masahiro Tanaka situation plays out. There is very little reported interest in guys like Matt Garza and Ubaldo Jimenez and Ervin Santana at the moment.
Today was a really busy day here at RAB, so to make sure you didn’t miss anything, here’s a recap of everything we posted:
- Fan Confidence Poll (make sure you vote if you missed it!)
- Joe on blowing past the $189M luxury tax threshold
- Joe on the problem with trading Brett Gardner
- Ben on Robinson Cano leaving the Yankees
- Scouting The Market: Omar Infante
- And finally, here is our running thread of the day’s Yankees-related rumors.
This is your open thread for the night. The Cowboys and Bears are the Monday Night Football Game plus the Islanders are playing as well. Talk about either game, the Winter Meetings, or anything else right here. Go nuts.
